Are you running on board graphics or do you have a graphics card?  Adding a card may fix you up.

Graphics card but it is low end.  It is a PCIe 16 first generation slot.

What about an HD7750.  I don't know how much it would help since the slot is not 2.0 or 3.0.

With 600,000 lines of code, I think regardless of the video card, you'll want to turn off the toolpath display. It's a very common issue, as the display is very resource intensive.
